Reviews from our community


I have not come across this level of service and high spec candidates in my dealings with childcare services before.

Jessica E.

Parent, Crouch End

“In the past people have been prejudiced against me because of my age, so when Grandnanny said my experience is valuable my heart sang.”

“This is my childcare fantasy!”

“Grandnanny is an excellent initiative to bring together two groups often seeking more social support, parents with young children and older people.
